dhruba borthakur commented on HADOOP-2656:

The timeout failure in the TestBalancer test does not seem to be related with this patch at
all. I have run this patch multiple times now without seeing this failure again.

> HADOOP-1700 describes the design for supporting appends to HDFS files. This design requires
a distributed-upgrade to existing cluster installations. The design specifies that the DataNode
persist the 8-byte BlockGenerationStamp in the block metadata file. The upgrade code will
introduce this new field in the block metadata file and initialize this value to 0.
